Some people really did go to greater heights to help their neighbors in Central New York.

Greater Heights Tree Care came to the rescue to help Lorrie Foss and her family in Oriskany, New York after their cat ran up a tree and stayed there for several days.

Neighbors Try to Coax Kitty Down

Neighbors tried everything they could think of to coax the kitty down but it refused to budge.

Four days later, in came the tree company with their bucket truck..

Thank you to this amazing tree company for saving my grandson's cat from the tree.

It looks like trees aren't the only thing this company goes to greater heights to take care of. Well done!
